Marilyn: This recipe originated many years ago with Uncle Curt's mother, Mary Richards. Since then, the Lears & the Meisters have enjoyed many wacky cakes. Mom didn't have to have a special occasion to bake it-she made it frequently. I have made this cake for every birthday since Chris was small. I tried another cake for Chris's birthday one year, but the wacky was voted back the following year & every year since. The cream cheese frosting is our favorite. Mom gave me this recipe for a small square pan, but the recipe above is for a double recipe-I always make the double recipe because it disappears so fast! It can be made in a small square pan--cut all ingredients in half & bake 20-25 min.
